Paulinho says goodbye to Chicago winter - Chicago Tribune new article



When I was chosen to play a song with Toots Thielemans on the Jazzy Christmas concert in Singapore I felt just like that, "Chosen".
It was one of the greatest moments in my musician career, for once I was in the right place at the right time. Which song will he choose? Would I be able to support the master without stepping on his toes? I did my best. I thank God for giving me the chance to be side by side with the master and to let us borrow him for 94 years, I know that God is happy to receive him back.
Rest In Peace Toots Thielemans (1922 - 2016)

An impromptu performance by Toots and Paulinho at the Jazzy Christmas concert produced by Jeremy Monteiro. Esplanade Hall of Singapore, December 08, 2008. I have never felt so humble, flattered, and grateful to be called on to play alongside a true master.

Esther Berlanga-Ryan Review: To review an album recorded by Paulinho Garcia is to be invited into an entire Universe of fragility and beauty. I knew this when I received a phone call from Garcia’s publicist a few short weeks ago, letting me know that the artist himself had requested that a copy of his new release was sent to my doorstep, for me to listen to and dissect it as I pleased. I felt both humbled and challenged. How does one find the fair combination of words to describe utter beauty?
